Public Safety agencies and peers reel in the wake of an employee suicide and yet the numbers of self-harm cases continue to annually outpace duty-related deaths. In addition to the number of employee suicides, thousands of peers wrestle daily with personal and professional crises unabated and untreated. Ignoring employee and peer crisis is a recipe for disaster, yet agencies typically wait until crisis has spiraled before responding with resources. This common reactive methodology provides minimal chance of success in preventing suicide or long-term personal or career challenges.

Course Objectives:

  • Review the seeds of personal and professional crisis and both yellow and red early warning and crisis indicators
  • Address how to respond to crisis
  • Instruct participants on how to address crisis long before it derails another career or risks another life

Who Should Attend:

  • Agencies wanting to understand suicide prevention and how crisis/self-harm develop during the career
  • Agencies that have experienced an employee suicide
  • Public safety crisis counselors and clinicians
  • Peer teams
  • Labor management
  • Union officials
